    Back On the Auction Block: Buick Blackhawk Concept


    • One of Buick's concepts hits the auction block

    Ever dreamed of owning a concept car? We'll you'll have your chance to bid on one in a few months time. RM Auctions has the Buick Blackhawk Concept from 2001 that will be crossing the auction block.

    The Blackhawk concept mixes vintage Buick design and components with modern technology. The styling is a combination of the late forties Roadmaster and Y-Job concept. There is a power retractable top which is made out of carbon fiber and stows in the decklid. Power comes from a 455 cubic-inch (7.5L) V8 from the 1970 GS Stage III with 463 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. This is paired up to a four-speed automatic.

    The Blackhawk was sold back in 2009 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ as part of a sale of a selection of GM's heritage fleet. At the time, it sold for $522,500 after the buyer's premium.

    The Blackhawk will be crossing the block on May 2nd as part of RM Auctions sale of the Andrews Collection in Fort Worth, TX.

    The only concept that I have my eye on is the Durango 95 (otherwise known as the Probe 16) from Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange". There were only five made, so I believe that qualifies as a concept.

    The 455 block IS back, just not thru Buick nor remotely cheap. Got a hankering for an easy 1000 HP?

    I take issue with the Blackhawk being called a 'concept'. 'Custom' or whatever is fine, but this is neither an OEM stylistic trial balloon or future intended production vehicle.
